Hi,

I have a problem with some reports that I generate through ASP.NET using Telerik Reporting. The size of reports are way too big, I have searched on the previous threads started here and have tried what they suggested but no real gain was noticed.

I have a main report with various sub reports.

In total the PDF is about 18 - 20 pages, containing mostly text, with the exception of about 12 images.

I already added code in the ASP.NET application to reduce the size of the images before it gets saved to the SQL Server.

I also dont embed the fonts as per some of the previous questions asked here.

However I still have reports that range from 8 - 14 Megabytes.

I need this much much smaller.

I am using Q2 2013 SP1 version for reporting.

Hello Paul,

The PDF rendering process can be controlled using the PDF Device Information Settings. At the moment the only option which will affect the resulting PDF size significantly is the FontEmbedding.
The images are probably the main reason for the current size of the report. Unfortunately, there is no option to further compress them in order to reduce the PDF size.

Hello Norman,

Most probably the large size of the PDF document is due to the large images that are used. Consider using smaller images and check whether the generated PDF will be smaller. Generally, in the PDF we include the image as a resource and specify the resolution it needs to be rendered with.

Note that from R3 2020 (14.2.20.916) we support also SVG images that may reduce the document size.
